Château Saint Robert

Domaine Robert Chevillon

Les Cailles Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Plenty of finesse and acidity despite the year, lots of depth to unwind - ought to age very nicely — 6 hours ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2013

Still developing, all business at this point, nothing flashy but has it together. All of the classical northern Rhône things are there (violets, pepper, smoked meat, herbs et al). A nice way to experience the maestro without shelling out big(ger) bucks for the Hermitage — 10 days ago

Château Barde-Haut

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2006

Very good wine albeit a little pricey for the quality IMHO. Plush and smooth on the palate and cool nose of dried fruits, flowers & gravel. — 10 days ago

Saint-Joseph Red Rhone Blend 2012

This bottle is like old Bordeaux. Nose has this lovely earth. Some cranberries peek out. Palate is cherry and cranberries. Very elegant. Still grippy tanins. Quite lovely and an interesting wine to drink.

Based on other notes this cork may have been very permissive oxygen wise.

Very elegant. Not at all rustic.

This needs some air for sure.

Bought from fass selections.

It’s better than 9.3, it was off

Domaine Rimbert

Le Mas au Schiste Saint-Chinian Carignan Blend 2016

Any producer that can somehow bring sadomasochism into wine should be congratulated. I had this several years ago and it’s interesting how it’s changed. It’s become more brutish, pun intended. it’s a bigger wine. In the past I loved it’s cinnamon notes and lighter texture but now it feels like there’s more Syrah or perhaps global warming has just caught up to it. Berkshires buy, from the summer. — 20 days ago

Fascinating to see how wine develops. Nice description.

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

This has greatly improved since my last bottle several years ago. Dark cherry, cedar, florals. Long and delicious finish. Several years ago, a friend told me the best wine with truffles was old Bordeaux. That was news to me as I always chose Barolo or Burgundy. I’m now a convert. — 3 days ago

En Chevrot Saint Romain Chardonnay 2018

The 2018, while young, blows me away again! How can this only be €20!!! I need to stop writing about it, so it doesn’t appreciate, but damn it’s so good! See previous notes of prior vintages. — 5 hours ago

9.2

Fascinating nose that shows the unreal unique terroir of St. Romain. Lemon drop, herbal, mineral, so distinct. Some ripe fruit. Palate is juicy and clean with terrific purity and freshness. Long, juicy and with an ample texture but great minerality. Lovely savory quality on the finish. Very long, salty and juicy. Terrific now but I sense there is more. Much more. @Delectable Wine its Chardonnay. Thanks. — 10 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

The reserve nose opens up with Initially with a waft of VA but then with air displays aromas dried purple flowers, stewed fruits, moss and pine needles. This could have really benefited from one hour decant and warmed up. No need to hold this unless you’re intrigued - I would drink this now without reservation. — 2 days ago
